MANITOWOC (NBC 26) — A middle school in Manitowoc is closed Friday as exterminators work to rid the school of a spider problem. The school closed after a student and member of staff were bitten by a spider Thursday.
According to Manitowoc Superintendent of Schools James Feil, he received a call Thursday from the Wilson Middle School principal, who reported a staff member and a student had spider bites.
Staff found some spiders in multiple classrooms. As a precaution, school was canceled for Friday and an exterminator was brought in Friday morning to get rid of the spiders.
Superintendent Feil expects classes will resume on Monday.
